Description: Nestled in Belfast's bustling Botanic Avenue, Sakura Sushi restaurant brings a taste of Tokyo to the city streets of Northern Ireland. Named after Japan's national flower – the cherry blossom – this sweet and shiny sushi restaurant is split over two floors and filled with glazed walnut furniture, a feature floral wall, bright and bubbly background music and cute Japanese lanterns. On the ground floor you can sit at the sushi train and choose from a superb selection of fresh sushi and sashimi or meals such as the salt and chilli sea bass or the roasted pork with curry udon noodles, while upstairs offers a variety of flexible spaces with plush carpets and sliding doors that are perfect for private parties.

This is a fantastic restaurant that caters well for vegetarians and vegans. They specifically ask whether you are pescatarian, vegetarian or vegan, which is refreshing for a change! Their food is delicious and I enjoy their authentic design/format of the restaurant with the conveyer belt. I recommend their seaweed salad and their miso soup (specifically ask without fish extract if you are vegetarian).

I finally got round to visiting here after several recommendations. I took my mum here for lunch and it was her first time having sushi. We sat at the sushi train and had a range of sushi between us. All of the food was good, there was a nice atmosphere in the place, the staff were helpful and the food was a great price..

They do a lot of different Asian style dishes. We went for a mix of Chinese and Japanese. We ordered everything to be brought out at once. Sushi rolls, roast duck Cantonese style, roast pork belly, soft shell crab, unagi on rice and a mixed sushi platter. We had a few glasses of wine as well. It cost £70 which is a bargain. Only issue was the seating is a bit close together. We enjoyed it and will be back. Parking isn't an issue either. Couple of close free car parks nearby.

I love the train with all the different plates of sushi and the choice is amazing! Will definately be back
